Call is closed – WG4 meeting in Galway

We are delighted to share with you the invitation to join an in-person WG4 meeting!

The meeting will take place on 30-31 May 2024, in Galway, Ireland at the School of Computer Science, University of Galway.

A tentative agenda for the meetings and details about the venue will be sent out in the following weeks. The main objective of the meeting is to finalize the systematic literature review paper and discuss possible other research and dissemination activities for WG4 NLP Applications Leveraging Eye-Tracking Data.

Please note that all members of WG4 are eligible to apply for attendance and will be reimbursed upon the completion of the event if they are elected by the COST Action Committee.

If you are a member of WG4 and wish to participate in the meeting, there are approx. 15 eligible places that will be reimbursed by COST. Note that priority will be given to WG4 members who have contributed to the working group’s activities.
If you are interested in attending, please send the application form via e-mail to The application form includes a brief motivation. In the application, you should explain why you wish to attend the meeting, mention your contribution to WG4, and your research experience in NLP Applications Leveraging Eye-Tracking Data. Please also specify if you are planning to contribute to the next dissemination and/or research activities of WG4.

If the number of applicants exceeds the number that can be supported by the available budget, the responsible Committee of the Action will select the applicants to be reimbursed. The selection will be based on the motivation received and the applicant’s contribution to WG4. The list of participants selected for reimbursement will be announced after the application deadline.

Applications should be submitted by March 10, 2024.

Formal invitations will be sent out to the selected participants via the e-COST platform.
Note that MultiplEYE can only cover the expenses for a limited number of places. Therefore, we also welcome participants who can cover their expenses through their universities or other sources. Applicants who apply but are not selected as eligible for reimbursement are nevertheless welcome to join the meeting at their own expenses. However, due to organisational matters, this number will be limited, as well.

According to COST rules, all participants who are eligible for reimbursement are expected to initially pay all the expenses themselves and provide evidence of expenses incurred via the e-COST platform. Participants will be reimbursed after the meeting for the attended days and travel time. Please refer to page 85 of the COST Annotated Rules to see precise calculations.
Please carefully read the Online Travel Reimbursement Rules (OTRR) on page 82 of the Annotated Rules for details on reimbursement upon the completion of the event.

We are looking forward to your applications, and to seeing some of you in Galway, Ireland!
